I doubt that I’m going to spend much time on Classic, but sure, why not reserve some characters?

I’m on Myzrael, by the way.

When Classic goes live — though probably not on the 27th — I will create a few more characters: Tauren Hunter Keturikka, Tauren Warrior Keijikka, and Dwarf Paladin Kyraleikka.

Will I ever play any of them significantly? Well, probably not…

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Human Mage. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

67) Tidespray Linen



Tidespray Linen set with Fangcaller’s Staff (H)/Tidespray Linen set with Lord Aldrius’ Greatstaff (A)
The crafted gear from Battle for Azeroth has faction-dichotomous appearances. For Horde characters, the tailored Tidespray Linen set has the same appearance as the Loa Speaker quest set from Nazmir. For Alliance characters, the Tidespray Linen set has the same appearance as the Wickerwoven quest set from Drustvar. If Horde characters want the Alliance appearance, they should look for the Heartsbane set on the AH. If Alliance characters want the Horde appearance, they should look for the Bloodhex set on the AH.

66) Tiragarde Navigator

Navigator’s Garb with Ceremonial Crown of Karabor, Seafury Tamer, and Crow’s Nest Spotlight
When Kinevra had quested through enough of Tiragarde Sound to collect all of the appearances for that zone’s coloration of the Kul Tiras cloth quest set, it was time to wear it.
Horde characters who want to wear this outfit should look for “Foxhollow” items on the Auction House.

65) Arcane Academic

Mish’undare, Silver-Thread Amice, Arcane Robe, Exiled Dabbler’s Cinch, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Stylish Black Shirt, Cauldron Stirrer
A pseudo-academic regalia outfit for Graduation Season.

64) Noble Gardener


Pink or Blue Spring Circlet, Blue Overalls, Durable Gloves, Fireheart Boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Garden Shovel
I can’t think of anything in particular to say about this outfit because it pretty much speaks for itself.

63) In Search of Kul Tiras


Slime-Encrusted Pads, Shimmering Armor, Belt of Unsolvable Problems, Greenblood Pantaloons, Hewing Gloves, Recomposed Boots, Stagheart Staff, Theramore Tabard
The green color scheme of this kit is cued off of the green armor and clothing worn by the soldiers and sailors who held Tiragarde Keep in Durotar before the ocean surges caused by Deathwing’s rampage washed it out.
The Zandalar intro is quite thrilling (Talanji! Talanji! Talanji!), but wow, the Kul Tiras intro packs a bigger emotional wallop. I enjoyed jail-breaking from Tol Dagor more than infiltrating Stormwind, too.

62) Tirisgarde Magus of the Three Schools

Warmongering Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Mantle of Tirisgarde, Vengeful Gladiator’s Silk Raiment, Girdle of Tirisgarde, Scarab-Caller Grips, Sorcerer Slippers, Archmage’s Staff*
I’m not particularly fond of the Tirisgarde Robe, so when it occurred to me that the Vengeful Gladiator’s Silk Raiment has very similar colors, I had to try the combination.
I wasn’t able to complete this outfit until after Patch 8.1 dropped, however, because the shoulders required Nightfallen-Exalted rep to wear as well as to purchase. Although Kinevra has made contact with Thalyssra at Shal’Aran, she hasn’t done much else for the Nightfallen.
She hasn’t quested in Val’sharah, either, which is why Khadgar is pestering her using his crystal ball.

61) Kirin Tor of Dalaran III

Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Oracle Belt of Timeless Mystery, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Soulcloth Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Drape of the Lithe, Aluneth (PvP, default tint)
When it came time to recruit the Void Elves for the Alliance, and then to collect the Heart of Azeroth, Kaylynda’s white & violet Kirin Tor outfit (see #45) seemed to be the right sort of thing to be wearing, so she donned it for the third time. The significant difference between this and previous iterations is the use of the PvP appearance of Aluneth — which complements the outfit quite nicely, I think!

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Human Mage. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

60) Grandma’s Kitchen Garden

Seer’s Padded Armor, Willow Belt, Scarecrow Trousers, Riding Gloves* + Revitalizing Wristguards, Riven Priesthood Slippers, Garden Shovel/Farmer’s Broom
When Kimorene existed as a separate alt, this was what she looked like, and this sweater was what she wore. In RP-space, Kimorene is one of the oldest of my characters by psychological age; she is Godmother to Kymberlea (and Kivrinne) and tends Kymberlea’s children while the Worgen Mage is out adventuring. Her previous appearance as “Princess of the Vir’naal” showed what she looked like when she was young.

Certain NPCs wear proper spectacles. I first noticed them on Sungshin Ironpaw at the Halfhill Market in Pandaria, but I’ve since spotted them on various others. If those spectacles ever become available for player characters to wear, not only would Kimorene always wear them but also most of my other Mage characters would probably end up wearing them as their default headgear, too.

59) Princess of the Vir’naal

Mountainsage Hood, Mooncloth Robe, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Riding Gloves* + Orphic Bracers, Kurkenstoks, Tabard of Ramhaken, Torth-Slayer’s Staff
I had an idea in mind to change Kaylynda into from her previous outfit, but I didn’t do it right when I thought of it. Then this idea ambushed me and now I’ve forgotten what the other one was. Maybe it will come back to me in a week or two.
This alter-ego character is named Kimorene. She once existed as an actual alt who was a Priest. As a Priest, she’d wear this variation on the outfit —

— which uses the Nightvale Cowl, Primal Mooncloth shoulders and belt, Hammer of the Astral Plane, and Heartbound Tome.

58) Arcane Inquisitor

Arcane Singed Mantle, Manawracker Vestments, Warmongering Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, Zaetar’s Gloves, Seawitch Sandals, Telmor Soulpriest Staff
Have you noticed that the robe for the cloth gear awarded from Broken Isles World Quests is the same style as the robe worn by the Inquisitor race of demons?

57) Beach Bonfire

Circle of Flame, Corrupted Mantle of the Felseekers (LFR), Robe of Crystal Waters*, Arachnidian Girdle & Gloves, Kurkenstoks, Amber Filigreed Shirt, Tabard of Summer Skies, Crystalfire Spellstaff
Sometimes I feel like maybe it’s a bit unfair to use items that are no longer available in my outfits — but if I’m not using them, then why did I go to all the trouble of getting them? A very similar appearance can be obtained by using the Robes of the Guardian Saint or the Robes of the Exalted.

56) Vindictive Archmage of the Alliance

Vindictive Gladiator’s Silk Armor with Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves and Apostle of Argus
It’s so nice that when I purchase a PvP appearance with a Horde-side character, I also get the corresponding Alliance appearance. I’m so very very fond of the blue-white-gold color scheme that whenever there is gear with faction-dichotomous appearances, I almost always like the Alliance version better.
After returning to her Safari Khakis (outfit #53) for a few weeks while she Pet Battled against Ashlei, Kaylynda finally dinged 110. Because she’d leveled primarily by Garrison flower picking, Order Hall XP missions, and the aforementioned Pet Battles, underneath the Transmogrification her gear is rather rubbish.

55) Quiet Meditation

Yalia’s Cowl, Tenderheart Shoulders, Robe of Quiet Meditation, Galaxyfire Girdle, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Dusklight Drape, Embroidered Shirt, Karabor Arcanist Rod
In another of my Trial of Style attempts, the “Zen” theme came up. I threw on this set — minus the shoes (because I was doing ToS with my Draenei) and the shirt — feeling a little like I was cheating to just be using a set — and then I won that round. I love the necklace that’s part of the robe for this set, and the color combination of dusty blue and old rose and antique gold and chocolate brown makes this my favorite recolor of this set. Despite how much I like this set, I hadn’t yet managed to wear it — so when Kaylynda wanted a change of clothes, she got to do it.

54) Stormwind Battlemage

Mountainsage Hood, Primal Mooncloth Shoulders, Whispering Tunic, Bridenbrad’s Sash, Leggings of the Night Sky, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Faith Healer’s Boots*, Bone Witch’s Drape, Stormwind Tabard, Replica Lion’s Fang, Divine Companion
This kit uses the version of the Stormwind Tabard sold by the Stormwind Quartermaster.

53) Safari Khakis


Safari Hat, Han Ibal’s Epaulettes, Journeyman’s Vest, Arcane Sash, Durable Pants, Riding Gloves* + Marsh Bracers, Walking Boots*, Captain Sanders’ Shirt, Vile Branch, Tabard of the Explorer
Because it vaguely reminds me of the long khaki vest with many pockets, I’ve had the idea to use this extra-long tunic in a cloth Safari Hat kit for a long time.

52) Gaudy Angel

Nightvale Cowl, Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater, Sutarn’s Ring, Replica Virtuous Skirt, Warmongering Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Staff of Immaculate Recovery
With another chestpiece, such as the Vicious Embersilk Robe, Gossamer Robe, Buccaneer’s Vest, or Aurora Armor, this would just be an ordinary angel.

51) Antique Glory

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Cindercloth Vest, Galaxyfire Girdle, Night Dreamer Leggings, Gossamer Gloves + Illidari Bindings, Elegant Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, Lorewalkers Tabard, Rod of the Blazing Light
The bronze shades seemed like they’d be a good accessory for a Lorewalkers kit.

50) Dalaran Watcher

Robes of Antiquity, High Councillor’s Sash, Zaetar’s Gloves, Replica Magister’s Boots, Helcular’s Other Rod, Kirin Tor Tabard
I tried some shoulders with this kit — I particularly liked the look of the Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads — but in the end decided to leave them off.

49) Festival Corsair

First Mate Hat, Death Speaker Mantle*, Watcher’s Tunic, Clutch of Andros*, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Orange Martial Shirt, Dying Light
Although I like how black sleeves look with the rest of the design of the tunic, black shirtsleeves underneath do obscure the lacy design of the sleeves of the tunic itself.
I’d been trying to decide between these boots and plain black shoes; when I remembered that I had this hat, then these boots were the obvious choice.

48) Dalaran Mage

Researcher’s Mantle, Darkmoon Robe, Gossamer Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Elementalist Boots, Whelp Keeper’s Staff
Some very simple shoulders dress this outfit up just a little bit.

47) Dalaran Apprentice

Manaweave Robe*/Chromatic Robe, Circle of Ossus, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Suspicious Slippers, Ley Staff*
This outfit is a bit of a cheat. The NPC outfit uses the leather Songbird Blouse with the skirt of the Chromatic Robe. The Chromatic Robe is common quality and thus non-Transmogrifiable. The nearest Transmogrifiable item is the Manaweave Robe — which was rewarded from a pre-Cataclysm Mage class quest chain and is no longer availabe (except perhaps for Blood Elves?).

46) Cloud Spinner

Arachnidian Robes, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Replica Virtuous Gloves + Leywalker Bracers, Slippers of Serenity, Used Bar Rag, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Athen’a
I hadn’t made an outfit with this coloration of this robe style yet, and it occurred to me that it might have the right sort of colors to coordinate nicely wtih the Cloud Serpent tabard. Well, the aquas do, anyway. I’d forgotten how green the skirt is.

45) Kirin Tor of Dalaran II

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Oracle Belt of Timeless Mystery, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Soulcloth Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Drape of the Lithe, Cold Convergence, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard
I was never really quite satisfied with the original version of this outfit (#31) because the belt wasn’t quite right (I should have just gone and farmed up this belt at the time). So here is an updated version that I like a lot better.

44) Professor of Potions

Fel-Proof Goggles, Duskhallow Mantle, Silver-Thread Robe, Ivycloth Sash, Fel-Infused Grips, Sorcerer Slippers, Warmonger’s Cloak, Green Martial Shirt, Arakkoa Divining Rod, Flask of Forest Mojo*
This is my “Severus Snape” outfit.

The combination of the sleeveless Silver-Thread Robe with a Martial Shirt produces a deeper black overall appearance than the nearly identical, sleeved Black Velvet Robe would.
The only still-available item with the same model as the Flask of Forest Mojo is the Tears of Heaven.
I didn’t include a hat in the original design because Snape doesn’t wear one. I initially thought about using a black hood to mimic Snape’s hair. Goggles are better, though. These gloves are better, too. Really, the lack of proper personal protective equipment in the Hogwarts potions labs is quite appalling…

43) Professor of Transfiguration

Wicked Witch’s Hat, Mantle of the Tribunal, Embroidered Gown of Zul’Drak, Living Mojo Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Cloak of the Grassy Cline, Mahogany Wand, Ironmender
This is my “Minerva McGonagall” outfit.

Although she is the Head of Gryffindor House, whose colours are red and gold, Professor McGonagall is clearly described as wearing “emerald green” robes. In the movies, she wears a dark forest green outer robe over a black dress.
I didn’t notice until I was making this outfit how the detailing on this Pandarian cloak style looks like a folded back hood.

42) Headmistress

Elder’s Hat, Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads, Masquerade Gown, Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Greater Magic Wand, Igniter Rod
This is my “Albus Dumbledore” outfit.

Alas, there are no Artifact wands in Legion; given that Kaylynda is semi-retired (for the time being), however, she can wear a wand outfit if she wants to.
The”Headmistress” title would of course be the most appropriate to wear with this outfit, but I didn’t bother to try to get it when the Key to Nar’thalas Academy was the hot new shiny from Archaeology, so the “Professor” title will have to do.

41) Spellflower

Nightvale Mantle, Spellfire Robe, Silkwood Cord, Widow’s Clutches + Goldenvine Wraps, Ruby Slippers, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
This pretty tailored Burning Crusade recolor of the Priest T2 robe pairs beautifully with the Val’sharah quest set shoulders to make a lovely spring outfit.

40) Kirin Tor Frost Mage

Iceshear Mantle, Raiments of the Corrupted, Wraps of the Persecuted, Slippers of Serenity, Tower of the Mouldering Corpse
Although Magister Serena’s robe has full-length sleeves, the robe that drops only has elbow-length sleeves. A blue recolor of the Ulduar Mage Tier gloves exists, but I don’t have it yet; these Naxx gloves coordinate well enough.

39) Eye-Catching Gilded Garb

Flare-Eyed Hood, Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Eye-Catching Gilded Robe, Deckhand’s Rope Belt, Stonewarper Wraps, Inferno Breath Sandals, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Rod of the Broken Temple
Having managed to collect the entire Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Mage Tier-lookalike set through Garrison follower missions, Kaylynda wanted to wear it.

38) A Study in Blue

Sorcerer Robe, Sage’s Gloves + Wristbands of Divine Influence, Shimmering Geta, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Divine Companion/Rod of the Broken Temple
When I picked up the Shimmering Geta while farming BWL for the Black Ash Robe, it was time to make an outfit with the Sorcerer Robe.
The robe has elbow-length sleeves, so a shirt is needed to fill in the gap. The Blue Linen Shirt is the closest color match, but its high, collared neckline interferes with the robe too much. The Cerulean Filigreed Doublet has a low neckline and the color, while not quite right if you look close, is okay. The brown Archmage/Durable version of this robe (aka the Jedi robe) has full-length sleeves. I would love to have Daros Moonlance’s pink version of this robe (and shoes)!
This turned into another “mirror mage” kit — Kaelinda and Kaylynda wearing the same thing at the same time — so that I could get a picture of the blue robe and the pink robe side-by-side. (I’d forgotten that some of the Shen’dralar librarians wear the pink version of the robe!)

37) Aegwynn’s Last Apprentice

Nightvale Cowl & Waistwrap, Destroyers’ Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Soulcloth Gloves, Kimbra Boots*, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Jaina’s Staff
Given that the former Guardian lived at Theramore and advised her, Jaina Proudmoore may be officially considered Aegwynn’s last apprentice. It seems to me, however, that possessing Aluneth would also make the First Conjuror of the renewed Tirisgarde Order in a sense a last apprentice of the Magna.

36) Regal Holiday

Councillor’s Robes/Robes of the Royal Crown, Captain Sanders’ Sash/Councillor’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Cloak of the Inciter/Drape of the Spellweaver, Fogcutter Staff/Conifer Cone Staff
This is a longtime favorite Winter Veil outfit idea of mine, but this year is the first time that I’ve actually done both color variations.

35) Erinys’ “Nothing Gold Can Stay”

Mystical Mantle, Greater Adept’s Robe, Soulguard Girdle, Soulcloth Gloves, Mountainsage Sandals, Darkmist Cape, Wand of Happiness, Suntouched Flowers
Erinys created this outfit in April 2014 for MoMaR’s “ROYGBIV” Transmogrification contest. The colors remind me of crocuses blooming above the snow in early spring.
Kaylynda still hasn’t been to the Broken Isles to establish her Order Hall and get her Artifact weapon, so she is still free to make wand-wielding outfits.

34) Primary Colours

Mirren’s Drinking Hat, Warpwood Leaf Mantle, Robe of the Dragon Slayer, Captain Sanders’ Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Infernoweave Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, Rod of the Blazing Light
This kit is an iteration of an outfit I first created for my Draenei Mage three or four years ago. I had set out to make a kit with these robes and was pleased by the bold color combination created by pairing them with these shoulders.

33) Tinker

Chief Architect’s Monocle, Wound-Cauterizing Spaulders, Elemental Raiment, Cord of the Slain Champion, Godfrey’s Britches, Troll Handler Gloves + Elastic Wristguards, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Peacekeeper Blade, Spring Gadget
I originally designed this kit to go with these boots for my “These Boots were Made for Mogging” event three years ago. I was definitely going for a “Gnomish inventor” look with the gear detail in the belt — which fortunately also has great colors to coordinate with the boots.

32) Classic Wicked Witch

Wicked Witch’s Hat, Regal Mantle, Black Mageweave Robe, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Crystalfire Staff
I can’t claim any sort of originality or creativity for this kit because it’s what the NPC witches are all wearing. This outfit will never be out of style for Hallow’s End.
Once I’d put the outfit together, then I had go do the Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor candy bucket tour to get a broom for the screenshots. I say this every year — I really wish the devs would just make the Magic Broom a permanent mount that can only be summoned during Hallow’s End. It would have to be easier to obtain than the Headless Horseman’s horse, though…

31) Kirin Tor of Dalaran

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Replica Sorcerer’s Belt, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard, Staff of the Skymagi
Kaylynda needed to be appropriately dressed before she responded to King Varian’s call to arms for the assault on the Broken Shore — and with the meta-knowledge that events in Dalaran were to come (though I’d not spoilt myself on what those events would be), I decided to dress her in the kit that is the reason why I did Isle of Thunder with this character.
I borrowed the idea of wearing these crafted shoulders from the Kirin Tor Quartermaster in Wrath-Dalaran.
The tabard and the staff make this an Alliance-only kit.

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Human Mage. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

30) Mountainsage Regalia

The Mountainsage set is the gear that a Mage is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

29) Sleek Sprinter

Regal Armor, Serenity Belt, Shimmering Trousers, Riding Gloves* + Earthmender’s Bracer of Shattering, Sage’s Boots, Competitor’s Tabard*, Helcular’s Other Rod or Torch of Austen + Tears of Heaven
I originally designed this outfit to commemorate the Olympic Summer Games in 2012 with the Swoop-Tail Shoulders and Sage’s Trousers. I was very well-pleased by how the green on top, red in the middle, blue on the bottom pattern of colors mimicked the pattern of the colors of the rings on the tabard. I couldn’t make it in-game at the time because only Kamalia had the limited-edition Competitor’s Tabard that commemorated the 2008 Summer Games. The account-wide Appearances collection in Patch 7.0 allowed me to finally make this outfit in-game for the 2016 Summer Games. Now that we can hide shoulders, however, it seemed most appropriate to leave them off, so I shifted the green color to the trousers and the blue color to the shoes.
For the staff version, I chose a plain, straight staff to suggest a vaulting pole.
For the wand-and-off-hand version, of course she had to be running the Torch! I chose this flask off-hand to represent the water that would be carried by a distance/endurance runner.

28) Stormwind War-Mage

Sage’s Mantle, Sorcerer Drape, Serenity Belt, Royal Trousers, Black Mageweave Gloves + Fireflash Bracers, Saltarello Shoes, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak (2-655), Stormwind Tabard, Replica Lion’s Fang, Karabor Arcanist Tome
This kit was made to go with the movie tie-in weapon. It also uses the new-and-improved version of the Stormwind Tabard obtained from the Garrison Bunker.
Betcha most of the Transmogrification kits that will be made to go with this sword (and its matching shield) will be plate outfits for Paladins or Warriors. Well, Mages can wield swords, too, so here’s a Lion’s Fang kit in cloth, for a change.

27) Gorian Mysteries

Shadowmoon Shoulderguards, Robes of the Arcane Ultimatum, Hexweave Belt (2-655), Mountainsage Handwraps + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Cavedweller’s Climbers, Staff of Infinite Mysteries
Kaylynda got this robe from a Highmaul follower mission, and I remembered that I had thought, upon first seeing the previews for the Highmaul Mage set, that the Shadowmoon shoulders might be good alternates. This also seemed like a good use for the stage 2 Hexweave belt.
Savage Blood required: 15

26) Raven’s Apprentice

The Argent Skullcap, Shoulderwraps of the Enthralled, Necrology Robes, Sly Mojo Sash, Cloudscorcher Handwraps, Felcast Sandals, Magician Staff
I have wanted this robe for my Warlock for ages but thought I would never be able to get because it has a ridiculously low drop rate. But then one day my Alliance Mage found it on the AH, and, thanks to her Warlords Garrison gold income, she could even afford to buy it. So, naturally, she needed a kit for it right away. My Warlock will get to use this robe when the account-wide Wardrobe goes live in Legion.
Somehow this kit feels like it would be great for a Shadow Priest, or one of the Raven Priests at New Hearthglen. But Kaylynda is a Mage… and, oh, hey, these are kind of the same colors as Medivh’s robes, and he does the raven thing, too!

25) Lunarfall Arcanist


Mistscape Wizard Hat & Robe, Feline Mantle, Serenity Belt, Tempest’s Touch, Wandering Boots*, Ley Staff*
This is why I wanted — nay, needed — a level 100 Alliance Mage. I like the Horde Town Hall and Inn well enough, but for all the other structures, especially the Mage Tower, I like the Alliance architecture better.

24) Commodore of the Cavalry

Fleet Commander’s Hat, Enumerated Shoulderpads, Sorcerer Drape, Laughing Skull Waistguard, Astralaan Pants, Coldwraith Handwraps + Sorcerer Bracelets, Saltarello Shoes, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak (2-655), White Tuxedo Shirt, Tower of Theramore*
Savage Blood required: 15
I’ve been waiting to make this kit for a long time — I originally designed it about 3.25 years ago for the Equestrian event of the Mogolympics. Oddly enough, it works equally well as an equestrian or a nautical theme, probably because the competition equestrian costume has its roots in cavalry uniforms — which share aesthetics with naval uniforms.

23) Shado-Pan Archmage

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Red Mageweave Vest, Sash of the Burning Heart, Legs of Ringing Echoes, Gloves of Tirisfal, Saltarello Shoes, Cloak of Passion, Dark Silk Shirt, Archmage’s Staff*
This kit resulted from the notion of using these specific pants in a Shado-Pan helmet outfit. I chose this tunic because it makes the red band at the top of the pants looks like an extension of the tunic rather than part of the pants themselves.
This staff came from the limited-time pre-Mists-launch version of the Theramore’s Fall scenario. There are several other staves that would look good with this kit, though.

22) Pyresinger


Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Funeral Pyre Vestment, Sash of Mortal Desire (10), Riding Gloves* + Glowing Magical Bracelets, Kurkenstoks, Funeral Pyre
I originally imagnined this kit as an RP outfit for my Tauren Priest. As it happened, however, I was able collect all the items with my Human Mage more quickly, thanks to a series of Alliance-side Firelands runs by the OLRG.

21) Aldor at Karabor


Pauldrons & Vestments of the Aldor (T4), Bridenbrad’s Sash, Zodiac Gloves* + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Soul-Strider Boots, Crazy Cenarion Cloak, Blue Linen Shirt, Staff of the Faithful*
Kaylynda feels a bit awkward about calling herself “of the Aldor” because she is a Scryer… And, for that matter, the Aldor are an order of priests whereas the Scryers are an order of mages, so shouldn’t the Aldor Regalia have been a Priest set, with Scryer Regalia as the Mage set?
